    Pros

    Great benefits, very smart people, great company culture. There is very good investment in research and development and scarcity of resources is never a limiting factor for innovation.

    Cons

    Research is very hierarchical and there is no career development track for non-PhDs or people who are in the research associate job function. Long-timers are more concerned with getting publications and their own career development rather than how their research aligns with the company goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please look at how career development is handled in research and align it more with how things are in the rest of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management, at Genentech,, Always be humble and look at the bigger picture and never forget that patient who is waiting for our medicine and who is waiting for our research. Let that be the driving force that we all share to excel us to the next level.
